Whoo hoo for long weekends! Part One is all about my Saturday spent in Niagara Fall, ON, protesting Opening Day at Marineland with Marineland Animal Defense.
My friend and I took the bus to the protest. When we got to the park, our driver thought he’d partake in the free parking being offered. (In his defence, he thought we were all GOING to Marineland until we stopped in St. Catherine’s for a bathroom break and he asked why we couldn’t use the bathrooms at Marineland). The police came on the bus and we were escorted out of the parking lot. Here’s a video.
Yeah… I fell into AR Fangirl mode and had my picture taken with Ric O’Barry. I mean, he was just standing there beside me, with his sign that had the SAME slogan, so why not? You should definitely check out the Dolphin Project and watch The Cove to find out more about Ric and what he’s been doing to help dolphins.
SO that was my Saturday. The rest of my weekend was pretty uneventful. Watched Buffy, ate vegan junk food, that kind of thing.
